What is a Momism?
It includes classic words of wisdom like "always wear clean underwear in case you get in an accident" to the quirky "don't walk on the carpet - you'll mess up the vacuum lines."
Author Patti Murphy's book is called "Mother Knows Better: Sense and Nonsense from American Moms."
The book reveals what mothers across the country have been telling their kids for generations.
It's Murphy's second book on Momisms.
Her first book was published in 2011 and featured quotes exclusively from Idahoans.
